For those that have been asking, it is my sad duty to report that Scott did not get elected last Tuesday. He lost the vote 161-126-2. Yes, there were two write-in votes. For Scooby Doo, I’m guessing. Based on how seriously some people take their vote.
But 161 votes for an incumbent is a clear indication that the incumbent doesn’t have a ton of support in his ward.
The momentary setback for Boone’s progress prompted me to get the following text message on Wednesday morning:
The wrong guy got elected.
I don’t want to go into a whole postmortem thing about the election right now. It is tough to defeat an incumbent. Particularly in an off year election. Especially when they have the backing of a political party and you don’t. Scott got a late start on his campaign. Perhaps Scott was even a slight victim of the blue wave that happened last Tuesday. It could even be argued that he was hurt by 1 issue voters. That 1 issue. Chickens in backyards.
Whatever the reason that Boone’s progress was temporarily halted last Tuesday, it is only temporary. Scott will continue his school board duties and he will be running for political office again. Soon. What office? Still to be determined.
I thought I would share some of the photos I took during this process:
Thanks to everybody that supported Scott and voted for Scott.
Don’t worry the revolution isn’t dead. The Scottie D. Revolution is just getting started!
